Our passenger seat came with the foot rest, but I found that I prefer using a small stool under my feet instead when traveling down the road. I'm not sure you could add a footrest without swapping out the entire chair.

I have a nicely finished wood box with a flip-top lid on the floor, about six inches high. And also a passenger can move up the seat, and put feet/legs on the dash with a pillow of choice. Seems to work, and the wooden box has storage inside to boot so that's where the mapbooks and campsite guides live.

I jusst took a few pieces of lumber that I had and made one to fit in front of co-pilots chair. My wife grumbled long and loud about how her legs got tired because the dog likes to sleep there. Now she can put her feet up and not step on the dog, everyone is happy, especially me since the grumbling about that stopped.

We are using a little foot stool now but it's always in the way exiting the coach. I dont want to replace both seats $$$ I believe are are flexsteel. I figure the foot rest is just welded to the seat frame. Dismantle the chair, weld the rest and reassemble. The "i figure" part is what scares me.

I just bought a brand new coach with a power foot rest on the passenger seat. 10 day's of ownership and we find out that when rotated to the living area the power foot rest doesn't work.

I take it to the dealer for repair and after 7 day we find out it is a manufacturer safety feature. It's designed not work when rotated to the living area. DW is not happy so I'm not happy.

After recovering from the initial grumbling from the DW I start thinking. What the heck is Flexsteel protecting me from? Safety feature to prevent me from tripping over the raised foot rest when getting up from the table? . I need to solve the problem before the safety feature causes more harm than good! Guess this weekend I'll be trying to figure out how to put my life in grave danger by disconnecting the safety feature?
